1. The Velveteen Rabbit
Because it’s a masterclass in how to write beautiful novels for small people, a heartbreaking tone poem that still resonates.
2. Harry Potter
Because it’s even more magical than you remember.
3. The Phantom Tollbooth
Because it’s like Lewis Carroll without all the jabberwocky and drug references and begs to be adapted into a live action-film. When that happens, you’ll want the book to be fresh in your mind.
4. The Giving Tree
Because you can’t let Ryan Gosling be right about that book.
Because some of them don’t age well (Calling All Creeps is undeniably silly) but others (like Ghost Dog) will still keep you up at night.
6. Charlotte’s Web
Because it’s a heartbreaking lesson about love, loss and moving on that so many of us are still working on learning. Warning: Just don’t read it after a breakup.
